what tezo said inspired me to make this thread and there hasnt been much lately so fire away Blazers, ans Lakerz fans.
Blazers can and will beat the Lakers if they face off in the Playoffs. RUDY FTWWW
i agree Blazers will kill the Blazers Oden would dominate that series. (noy but i have to defend my team).
Blazers will kill the Blazers...EDIT haha
this takes me back to game 7 of the 2000 western confrence finals. 10 minutes left in the 4th, Portland is up by 15 points. I was so mad and was ready to get up and go to the gym and hit the weights to take out my frustration. But then the Lakers get hot. They stopped trying to force the ball into Shaq and they just let the threes fire. Shaw starts nailing 3's, even banking one in. The Lakers come back and win. Good memories.
And blazers match up is a good greg would beat the crap outta everyone if your talkin about a fight and if your talker about a game the blazer are known as the lakers killas
greg would do nothin in that series but block hella shots and grab rebs
Bynum vs Oden/Pryzbilla
Gasol/Odom/Powell vs Aldridge/Outlaw/Howard
Artest vs Batum
Kobe/Brown/Vujacic vs Roy/Fernandez/Webster
Fisher/Farmar vs Miller/Blake
That's a good matchup lol... The Blazers have more than just a chance to win that game lol. It's arguable the Blazers are the deeper team.
if It was a physical actual fight, I've got my money on DJ Mbenga over Oden or Przybilla. If it was an all out 15 on 15 brawl, now that would be interesting. Gasol and Odom wuold both get laid out in a second. But Artest and Fisher would be roughing dudes up. I also think Vujacic might be a sneaky fighter and get dirty. He would probably look like Jeff van gundy wrapped around Zo's legs biting on someone's ankles.
they are the deeper team you left Bayless off that list,
Pryzbilla would dominate in a fight hes big and would give it all.
Mbenga is a judo black belt. Judo, for those that don't know, is an aggresive style of fighting where you clinch your opponent and sweep the legs and throw them on their head. DJ could compete at the national level if he wanted to. I saw a video on the internet from last season where he and Chris Mihm got into it at practice, and it took the entire Laker team to hold DJ back. He would put Joel on his head in a second.
oh i didnt know that my bad.
Maybe Mbenga should think about a career change then lol because basketball wise... He's terrible.
I'm a Lakers fan, but even i gotta admit how good the Blazers r gonna be this year. I still think the Lakers would win in a 7 game series however. The Lakers have been in thos situations so much the past few years that they know how to play in close games on the biggest stage. The Blazers may beat them a couple of times during the regular season, and if they face off in the playoffs then it would definetley be a 6 or 7 game series, but the Lakers would win.
With Ron Arterst and with a healthy Bynum I think Lakers have the edge but Portland is probably one of the few teams that actually gives Lakers problems. With Ron Artest though, Kobe does not have to guard Roy. Miller and Batum are not huge shooter/score types.
Lakers Better Chemistry By Far More experience and the best player of the decade KOBE BRYANT!!
better chemistry? dont make me laugh. the blazers are one of the youngest teams in the league all those guys are friends and enjoy hangin with eachther. do you know anything about the blazers at all? and who really likes kobe anyways? not his teamates
